Well, the mushroom experiment has officially started. We are actually into week two of the process. That process is basically misting the mushroom bases 3 to 4 times a day. This photo shows the humidity bags over the Shiitake and Pioppino sets.

Mushrooms!

Notice we have babies on the Shiitakes. Woo hoo.

This is a closeup of the mushroom babies.

All that is required is the daily misting. The hardest part was the fact the water couldn’t have chlorine. That meant boiling water every day. Mother nature came to the rescue and provided us with a deluge over the weekend. I harvested rain water and now have a proper supply of non-chlorinated water for my mushroom patch.

Mushrooms!

Now, figuring out a way to help Don remember to mist them for me while I’m off on baby watch in Arizona will be the real trick. Wish me luck.

Ciao, y’all. And happy new year.
